It's the last chance for back-to-school shots before CCSD classes are back in session next week!

A back-to-school immunization clinic organized by Immunize Nevada will be held from 9 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 7 at the Southern Nevada Health District (280 S. Decatur Blvd.). No appointment is necessary. Free COVID-19 vaccinations will also be available at this clinic for students age 12 and older.

The Health District also offers back-to-school immunizations at the following locations:

Back-to-school and COVID-19 vaccines at middle school and high school locations throughout the valley. For locations, dates and times go to www.snhd.info/covid-vaccine.

The Clark County School District requires the following vaccinations for students enrolling in school: chickenpox (varicella), hepatitis A, hepatitis B, polio, tetanus-diphtheria-pertussis (DTaP and Tdap), quadrivalent meningitis, and measles-mumps-rubella (MMR). Parents who recently moved to Nevada should note hepatitis A vaccination is required in the state. Immunizations that were up-to-date in other states that do not require hepatitis A vaccination might not be current in Nevada. For a list of immunization requirements for school, visit Immunize Nevada’s School Vaccinations page.

Children entering 7th grade must be immunized against tetanus-diphtheria-pertussis (Tdap) as well as Neisseria meningitidis (meningitis) in the form of a quadrivalent meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MenACWY). The meningitis vaccine is also required for 8th through 12th grade students who are new to the Clark County School District. A booster dose of quadrivalent meningococcal conjugate and the meningococcal B vaccines are recommended for teens who are 16 to 18 years old. College freshmen younger than 23 years old who are enrolled at a Nevada college or university and living in a dormitory are required to receive the meningococcal vaccine. The Tdap (tetanus-diphtheria-pertussis), meningococcal B, and quadrivalent meningococcal conjugate vaccines are all available at the Southern Nevada Health District.

Parents vaccinating a child at a Health District clinic should bring immunization records. Parents who cannot locate immunization records should contact their health care provider. If their children were immunized in Nevada, parents can also visit the Nevada WebIZ Public Portal or call Nevada WebIZ at 1 (877) 689-3249. Non-custodial adults may accompany a child; however, written consent must be provided to the Health District from the parent or guardian at the time of service. Administrative fees and cost of vaccines may be applied depending upon insurance status.

The Health District accepts most insurance plans. Not all immunizations are covered by insurance. Contact the Health District’s immunization clinic for information and current fee schedule.
